Tuesday's Mega Millions jackpot of $322 million has finally been won! The lucky winner is yet to come forward to claim the prize. If you bought a ticket for Tuesday’s drawing, it's time to check your numbers and see if you hit it big.
The winning numbers for Tuesday, June 15th were 10, 17, 21, 38 and 43 with a gold mega ball number of 23. According to Mega Millions officials, the winning ticket was sold at a liquor store in New York City. It's not known who bought that ticket or if there are any additional winners.
This jackpot had been growing since May when someone from Pennsylvania won $516 million in the multi-state lottery game. The odds of winning the grand prize are roughly one in more than 300 million.
The Mega Millions lottery is played across multiple states including California, Georgia, Illinois and others. Players pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers: five different numbers ranging from one through seventy (the white balls) and one number ranging from one through twenty-five (the gold "mega ball").
Officials urge anyone who thinks they may have won even a secondary prize in Tuesday's drawing to sign the back of their tickets immediately so that no one else can claim their winnings.
Congratulations to whoever wins this life-changing amount!
